Foreign countries show interest for local manufacturing of Russian medicines

This was announced by the Russian Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov in an interview with NTV.

“We are less expensive and, in some categories, substantially less expensive than Western manufacturers. I must say that they are interested in establishing the production facilities on their territory. We are conducting a multi-format work in this area, which involves Japan, China, Indonesia, the Middle East, Latin America, and we also begin to work with Europe. The issue always comes to the price and efficacy of drugs,” said Denis Manturov.

Mr. Manturov added that, in terms of quality, there is no difference between the medicines of Russian pharmaceutical companies that are exported overseas and those sold on the domestic market.

“There is absolutely no difference,” said Mr. Manturov.
